Store lighting.

Bleh, this bites.

I went out for a cheesy one day sale tonight, just to see if there was anything decent. I ended up finding a really cool sweater, for $20. So I picked it up, got home, and discovered that the actual color barely matches the color it appeared to be in the store. We have similar lighting to what's at the store in my kitchen, and it looks right there. Any other room in the house, and it's changed colors.

It seems like a truly remarkable fabric, in that sense, but I'm rather annoyed that it isn't the color I thought it was. ;-p

Silence on the job front...

Well, I have yet to hear from IBM with their 'official' offer of a job.

I'm starting to get a little worried and trying to figure out whether this is gonna fall through, or what.

When I heard from the guy at the University who set everything up, he said he was calling on behalf of the guy from IBM, and that it looked pretty certain. Especially the fact that the guy from IBM asked him to call, makes me think this will prolly still happen.

However, he said IBM would contact me within a few days, and I haven't heard a thing from them yet. Of course, a 'few days' can mean different things to different people. When I say it, I usually mean it to be 2-3, but my brother has said it when he meant a week or so. It's hard to tell.

I think I'm gonna try to get a hold of the guy at school tomorrow, and if he doesn't have any news for me, I'm gonna start planning as if I'm not getting the Co-Op. I'd love to have it, but if it falls through, I need to get classes registered, and find myself a new job.

Even if I'm not getting it, I really wish they'd tell me for sure one way or another...that way I can get setup for whatever I need to.

Would you like fries with your help?

Okay, maybe someone out there can help me out. I was telling shrew about this, but she doesn't believe me.

I happen to be an extremely boring and unfunny person. It's not a good thing, but it's a fact. My life is utterly unexciting, and this causes me to regularly sink into boredom.

Now, this wouldn't be all that bad, but I'm also terribly unfunny. My sense of humor must have been somehow stunted while I was a child. I'm sure all of you who have chanced upon any of my entries have noticed by now that they tend to be very dry and boring. I don't do that on purpose, I simply can't help it.

Every time I try to make a joke, I fail. I think the thing that gets me the most, is my lack of ability to understand sarcasm. It just doesn't make sense to me. What is it that's supposed to be so funny about saying one thing, but meaning something different? Is that supposed to be like irony or something?

Oh, well. Maybe when I get old I'll figure this humor thing out. If anyone has any suggestions or knows of any how-to books or anything, I'd appreciate it. I really don't like being this boring.
